Fire Mountain Gems and Beads 2009 Jewelry-Making Contest Finalist
As a designer, I am inspired by Mother Nature, love and the desire to bring positive emotions and happiness to people.
It is hard to define my artistic style, but I can make anything look artistic. The goal is not only to make a pretty jewelry piece, but also for the item to be comfortable when it is being worn. Any material brings joy to me when I work with it because there is inspiration present and an original idea.
The best design that I have made is the Embedded Heart. This design was inspired by love towards my daughter. Before I started working on it, I carefully thought through all the technical details for the piece and then I started working on it.
Share Your Background:
I started making jewelry seven years ago as a professional because I wanted to introduce unique and exclusive things for individuals who don't like banal and trite things.
Previously, I was a professional designer and director in the music theater. I came to beading myself. Beading gives wonderful opportunity for combining materials in an original way. I discovered Fire Mountain through journals and magazines.
Jewelry-making is a full-time career for me. It is the realization of my artistic self. Every item is very dear to me and I am emotionally attached to them all.
